HANFORD, Calif., Oct. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — FarmFundr (https://www.farmfundr.com/) announced a new investment opportunity with an established orchard of walnut trees located in Kings County, California. The Denver Walnut Orchard is a 25.6-acre property with 15-year-old Tulare Walnut trees that have consistently produced an annual average of 5000 pounds of walnuts for a robust market. Interested investors will own 100% of the portfolio company, purchasing an interest in FarmFundr 3, LLC, which will own the deed to the property and manage it. The farm is slated for conversion from conventional to certified organic, making this an important environmental impact investment. As of this writing, the Denver Walnut Orchard project is already 50% funded, having met that milestone just a few days after launch.

Other factors also make this opportunity attractive:
- Cash Flow: Annual returns from sales of walnut crop.

- Managed by Farm and Land Company, a full-service farming company founded in 1979 with over 50-years-experience.
FarmFundr: Assets Grown with Expert Hands
Having bought and sold millions in real estate, while currently managing millions in assets, CEO Brandon Silveira’s farm management company was recognized in 2012 for achieving over 900% growth and was named number 701 on INC. Magazine’s list of the fastest growing companies. Brandon’s specialty is farm management, land acquisition, and strategies involving farm financing. As a graduate from California Polytechnic University San Luis Obispo with an agricultural degree, Brandon can assure investors they are working with an expert farmer with a clear eye for what is needed for a successful farming venture.
"Farming begins by seeing the land in its raw state and imagining the bounty it can produce – even in hard times," said Brandon Silveira. "But the Denver Orchard is already bounteous. We don’t have to imagine how fertile it is – we know. And over time, this sort of investment will remain solid because the land itself is very resilient to economic cycles. Despite ups-and-downs, the land remains. The need for food remains. And that need is only going to increase in the future with growing populations. The demand for walnuts is not going to diminish anytime soon. We think this orchard is a great investment."
